We as Staff have decided to permanently shut down the Main Discord channel for Standing Trials. We will be shutting it down in about two days, on Sunday February 2nd. You have that much time to establish as many contacts, friend requests, and otherwise make contact with people you still wish to keep in touch with on discord.

The city discords will be run by their respective mods. Please PM a city mod if you wish to have an invite to their city discord (If they keep a city discord). Bear in mind that the city discords will generally only be available to those players who play there and nobody else. Mods and channel owners will police their discords as they see fit, so be on your best behavior within them, or you will likely be kicked from them.

This was an easy decision for all staff to make, as we spend almost the bulk of our energy policing and answering questions on the main discord. It has also been the source of much drama in the past and even now. This way, we'll be able to devote more energy to what brought us here in the first place, a love of roleplaying, fantasy, and writing.

If anyone has questions about the site or the game itself, there is a Q&A forum for that purpose. Please use our forums for anything you need answers to.

Staff Resignation


Hello everyone,

Unfortunately, Druid has decided to step down from staff. We very much appreciate all the dev she's done for the game as a player and a staffer, and of course, she worked on the Calendar for Ashan in Desnind, which was fantastic (That's a plug by the way). Hopefully, she decides to keep on going with her character as a player, and she's expressed some interest in continuing dev work as a player. If you see Druid around, feel free to send a nice message and a thank you for all the wonderful work she's done on-site.

Staff Resignation

Pig Boy
We are very sad to say that Pig Boy has decided to step down from ST staff. We all wish him the very very best. Pigs has done an incredible amount of work for the site and we are very grateful to him. Unfortunately, burn-out happens and means that sometimes, we need to step down. Pig Boy does so with our thanks and best wishes and hope to see his PCs posting all over the place.

New Role, Extending an Existing Role.....


Following a player suggestion, we've created (will be doing the techy stuff for it soon!) a new role called "Wiki Worker" - this is a player role which is a way for players to help out on site without committing to full staff. Basically, the purpose of this role is to be a group who work on getting the Wiki finished, up to date, and as accessible as possible.

If you'd like to be a Wiki Worker, we'd be delighted to have you on board. I'm going to be overseeing the group and will give training etc. These Wiki Workers will be involved in staff chat, also, so that there's clear transparency of what we're doing etc. If you'd like to be a Wiki Worker - please drop me a PM in the first instance.

Also - we're extending the Peer Review role - to include CS approval and some PSF requests.

I can't express how grateful we are to our peer reviewers - they keep the site flourishing by reviewing our threads. If anyone would like to apply to join the Peer Review group - please post in the PSF. Thanks!!

Returning Staff - A Reminder - And A New Rule!!.....

Three things today!!!


First - we're delighted to say that Pig Boy has decided to return to staff. He's been welcomed back very warmly and we're pleased to see him!

Second - we have a solid and very hard-working group of Peer Reviewers and Wiki Workers. Please, consider giving over a few hours to join their ranks. There's always a lot to do and they can (and do) create real positive change and improve the site. Want proof? Here's how.........

Third - one of our Wiki Workers, Darius, made a suggestion. This has been voted on by the Prophets, Wiki Workers and Peer Reviewers and got a unanimous yes. So.
From the 1st of next Cycle (not grandfathered back - that would be too confusing) players may claim a bonus to their Wealth Thread depending on the level of their Wealth Skill. This is as follows:
Expert = + 1 WP
Master = + 3WP
GM = + 5WP
Tier 2 = + 10 WP
This bonus will be per wealth thread and will be on top of the usual wage. Players need to show their mathematical working - out in the claim. This is on top of any other bonus as does not impact the base wage at all and applies to all PCs, whether wilderness or wage-earning.

Hello Players, just a short notice before you start seeing these guys popping up here and there...

We on the mod team are proud to announce a new race. The dev and lore team have toiled endlessly to bring these creatures to you, but finally everything is falling into place and they're ready to be released.

The Sciuridae are a race of people that have existed under the yoke of the Eternal Empire. Created by Karem, they are excellent hunters, often hiding out in the woodlands of the Empire and poaching game, or foraging for nuts.

Here's some early concept art for the Scuridae:

We hope you give these little guys a chance to play around with. In the meantime, happy writing!

ohh, and...
